The double degree programme in Sustainable Animal Nutrition and Feeding educates students to solve the animal nutrition challenges of the future. As the global demand for food increases and awareness of the environmental impact of agriculture grows, scientists and experts who can come up with solutions are in ever-greater demand. This degree offers a unique programme for very talented students in a high-ranking international research environment that equips them to come up with the solutions of tomorrow.

An International Double Degree

Students choose courses from two leading European universities (Aarhus University and Wageningen University), and they receive degrees from both universities upon graduation. The Aarhus specialism is an in-depth animal nutrition programme combined with a nutrient cycling programme. While animal nutrition and environmental protection are often studied, few programmes combine the two. This programme couples in-depth knowledge of the environment and nutrient cycling with animal nutrition. It teaches students to be aware of and to minimise the environmental impact of agriculture, while optimising health, welfare and product quality for the animals.

Upon completing the programme, students will have an international profile and network as well as state-of-the-art knowledge of their specialism.

The farming industry and the environment are global and therefore, it is impossible to address these problems operating within a narrow national framework. Our graduates’ abilities to adapt to changing environments as well as their excellent intercultural communication skills help them to succeed in their careers.

Career Profile  

Graduates of this programme are in very high demand and can take advantage of Aarhus University’s extensive professional network and strong industry partnerships. Students typically find careers in feed companies, consultancies, government departments and educational institutions.
